Hygiene-Conscious Consumers Shift to Touchless Technology Amid COVID-19 Concerns

Hygiene-Conscious Consumers Shift to Touchless Technology Amid COVID-19 Concerns

In a post-COVID-19 world, the fear of transmitting potentially deadly germs is still at the forefront of our minds. Yet with these valid concerns comes innovation – case in point, touchless technology. With more hygiene-conscious consumers than ever, there has been a surge in touchless technology and an interest in self-lifting and self-cleaning toilets.

Tuscon, Arizona-based Benjamin Plumbing Supply has reportedly seen this uptick in sales of touchless technology. According to an employee, Tina Roesler, this combination of hygiene and high-tech comes from Japan – and not just those who there or techies, but it has also been sports players who also invest in these customizable toilets as well (for their height, warmth, and oscillating levels).



Initially, Roesler said the “hot-sellers” were self-rinsing bidets when toilet paper got scarce. Now, the trend has spread to hands-free faucets as seen in commercial buildings that can be in the home, but without the industrial look. These cost from $400 and up.
